    Toledo mayor can bring dog to work

    TOLEDO (AP) — A state agency has reversed itself and now says it's OK for Toledo's mayor to bring his dog to work.

    The Ohio Building Authority owns the building that houses Mayor Carty Finkbeiner's office, as well as the Toledo City Council. Finkbeiner has been bringing his yellow Labrador retriever, Scout, to the office since last December, but the agency's local manager told the mayor last month that he needed to stop, because pets were prohibited from One Government Center.

    This week, building authority executive director Mark Gibson gave Scout permission to tag along with the mayor, as long as the dog keeps to floors of the building leased by the city. He must be on a leash when passing through common areas, such as the lobby and elevators.

    Down this end of the state we have a federal judge who brings her two yapping anklebiter dogs to the courthouse every day, in spite of rules to the contrary. Of course it's probably a coincidence that she was appointed to the position by Prez. Clinton after, along with her well-known "sue 'em all, let God sort 'em out" husband, hosted several funraisers for him at their stately home.
